A cup of joe that’ll keep you sharp, in-focus, and happy all day long…and those side effects aren’t from the caffeine.
Introducing: the Camera Lens Mug, a mug rendered to resemble a remarkably realistic 24-105mm Canon lens!
Complete with lens-cap lid and rubber-grip zoom and focus rings, this marvelous mug also features an autofocus switch that actually switches between AF and MF.
We know the warning signs too well. You’ll begin with a cup of Earl Grey, then move onto a banana yogurt smoothie, next, an ice cream fudge sundae, and pretty soon, you’ll be so hooked on your new mug, you’ll be eating dinner out it, too!
Camera-geek meet Camera Lens Mug, your new favorite lemonade/jelly-bean/meatloaf/plant-holder.
p.s. Check out its opposite: a lens made from a mug!

It’s July! And so far, we’ve had a little lot of fun this summer. This may explain our dwindling funds.
Dwindled or not, funds are a non-factor when it comes to our two newest photo toys! They’ll stretch your summer fun through to the end of August, and beyond! (Dare we mention fall?)
Affordable yet awesome, they’re our two favorite new finds.

We’d been saving up for our dream trip to Japan ever since we saw Lost in Translation.
After hours of nodding in and out of second-run movies and throwing hot towels on our face, we made it! And guess what? Japan truly is the land of all things magical and rare, just like Sofia promised!
We couldn’t possibly leave all that magic behind, so a week later we stuffed our pockets full of Animags, put on our most innocent look, and dashed through customs.
What the hey are Animags? Only the most adorable magnetic photo-holders shaped like animals. Ever.
Intricately-detailed zebra, grizzly bear, deer, and hammerhead shark each split in two with hidden magnets for sandwiching and holding your prints. Photo-farm > Farmville.
p.s. Our pals at Vimeo are putting together an *awesome video festival*. Enter yours, you might win a $25,000 grant!

Buckles, zippers, and straps — covert architects of lost photo opportunities everywhere.
We can’t count the number of times our trusty SLR was at our side but we missed the shot, thwarted by a case too slow to open.
Then we found it.
Our new fave camera bag, the Cloak, lets you shoot while your camera’s still in the bag!
How it works: a zippered bottom can stay open while you walk because the bag’s strap doubles as the camera’s strap. And stealthy elastic side slits let you get your hands on the controls in a flash. It’s as if the camera’s right there in plain sight. But only you can see it. (learn more)
Now when that perfect moment occurs, we just lift our camera bag to our face and snap! (Scroll on for more Father’s Day Gift ideas…)
A classic alternative to the drab strap that came with your Daddy-o’s Rebel.
Sturdy silver swivel clips, leather-wrapped buckles and a rich hunter green shade are just the stuff to put some strut in his photo walk.
Gifts for the Spy Dad
The Spy Lens is a 90° zoom lens adapter that lets dad go undetected for candid street photography, photo-reportage weddings, and kid photography.
Available in a wide range of sizes (and fits-all Ultimate Kit) for any SLR lens.
The You-Vision Video Glasses make your dad’s nerd dream a reality.
A stealthy little camera in the bridge records full-motion video at the press of a button!
Built-in rechargeable batteries, 2GB of memory (enough for hours of video), works with Macs and PCs, charges via USB.
For dads looking to take their photo sorcery to the next level (which should be all of ‘em)… this is the stuff.
These liquid drops combine to form INSTANT SMOKE! Imported from Italy.
Gifts for Go-Go-Gadget Dad
Is dad a rapid-fire shooter? Fixing dozens (or even 100s) of photos with just slightly different colors, one-by-one, is a pain only too familiar.
The White Balance Lens Cap is the simplest way to white balance photos when you take ‘em, the right way. Best of all, there’s nothing extra to carry.
Dad may not have go-go-gadget tripod arms, but the Collapsible Camera Extender is almost as good.
This telescoping monopod fits in dad’s pocket and is perfect for vacations, group shots, and getting dad in the photo. For once.
If re-shooting, cropping, and re-shooting again is the closest dad’s been to virtue and balance — perhaps we can help.
This 3-axis bubble gauge slides into any SLR hot shoe, and makes sure dad stays on the level.
The Bottle Cap Tripod fits on top of pretty much any kind of bottle, turning it into an instant camera tripod! 1″ square, and it goes everywhere
Self-portraits, group photos on self-timer, and steady low-light shots just became a whole lot easier!
Dad may sleep with his Nikon, but he can’t take it everywhere.
For those times when he has to leave his precious at home, this easily-applied, easily-remove decal will remind others his your other laptop is a DSLR.
Gifts for the Dads with it All
For the dad with everything, there’s only one thing: A Photojojo Gift Card good for, well, everything!
Customize an eco-friendly electronic version, or buy a paper version with bonus camera keychain and let dad get whatever he wants this year.
Huzzah! We’ve got two new goodies this week that’ll surely amp your photo taking look.
One is a soft and cozy place for a camera that’s clearly labeled to serve your memory. The other straps to your cam, dripping it with quirky Tokyo street style.
We love them both dearly. So welcome them with open arms, fashionable photog.

Our laptop, a.k.a. “Our Really Expensive Email/Facebook/Twitter/Flickr Machine”.

Taking a great photo is kinda like making magic happen — leave it to us to really Houdini the heck out if it.
Introducing our new Pro-Grade Smoke EFX Drops. Magical elixirs that give you the power to make smoke appear out of thin air enticing endless photo inspiration.
Wondering how they work? Brave the jump young apprentice!
Life holds such great pleasure. Like fresh laundered socks, the smell of library books, the release of a brand new version of Photoshop …
Though sometimes it’s easy to forget the most simplest of all: the snap of a camera shutter. Pure. Beauty.
Which is why we love our new Keep Calm and Snap On Prints.
Their sharp design (and vibrant colors) look mighty fine. But best of all, they remind us to sit back, breathe, and put a camera in our hands. Ahh yeah.
